Further MIddle East instability likely now

This is breaking news as I post: The Israeli Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon, suffered a cerebral hemorrhage and has subsequently transferred his powers to the vice primier.

Now, it doesn't take some geopolitical wizard to understand that this is bad for stability in that region. Some nations might see it as an opportunity to advance their ideals and so on.

This becomes increasingly frustrating, to me at least, due to the nature of the media in this country. We aren't really given any tangible information as to the actual situation in that region. All we get are a bunch of throw away one-liners which are more than likely released by the current administration.

Perhaps all of the religious nut-jobs running this country are going to manufacture some sort of apocalypse scenario. Argh, my paranoia is increasing by the day. I don't know what to think anymore. Everyday I read two more stories about Iran developing nukes at an increasing rate, Israel attempting to thwart Iran, Russia and China playing roles in this whole mess, etc, etc. All the while, we have this massive idiot in the white house who is taking direction from the bible.

"Son of the bitch!", as my Russian friend exclaimed once.
